Quick update to the lege's schedule for the week

A couple of new committee agendas have been posted for this week.

House Health and Human Services will meet on Wednesday at 9 a.m. in HHR4. The agenda has one item on it, a striker to SB1043 that would restore KidsCare, the state's Children's Health Insurance Program. The KidsCare program was ended and removed from state statute in next year's budget, passed during the lege's special session in March.

House Judiciary will meet on Wednesday at 9:01 a.m. (or upon adjournment of HHS) in HHR4. That agenda also includes but a single item, a striker to SCR1009 that, if passed by the voters, would repeal Clean Elections in Arizona. As the measure is currently written, it would ban the use of public money for Clean Elections.

In other words, the striker is just as bad as the original, but it's a cleaner, more direct, kind of "bad."

Lastly, there will be a prayer session and press conference in the Capitol's rose garden by the interfaith community, urging the Governor to veto SB1170, Russell Pearce's police state bill. Proceedings start at 11 a.m. on Tuesday.
